I think this year's device is going to be quite a bit bigger than last year's (20 to 30 cm more in total). I'm at a 30mx30cmx40cm right now and have completed 6 of the 9 tasks (plus completed start and final) I´m attempting for now. Everything should fit inside this box.

Top teams will still make some combination of dimensions to get all 90 points

I have mine as 24.5 x 29.5 x 35.5.

Assuming I haven't made any really stupid mistakes, it should be fairly easy to get all the tasks to fir in this space.

Have you attempted the 3 ima pulley yet? It requires the counterweight to travel at least 30 cm to lift the weight the required 10 cm. If that fits in 35.5 vertical cm, that's amazing.

How are you managing to turn the pulley without a counterweight? My team reasoned that, since we can’t use an electric motor, winding the pulley like a winch was out of question.

Get creative with how you do it. If you wait about 8 months I'll tell you what I did

You could just use more pulleys, I suppose, as long as you have the required pulleys. That probably wouldn't be a very useful solution though.

Would it be legal to do an scorable action that requires electricty twice

See 3.d. and 4.b. The keywords are 'once' and 'unique'. So therefore, I'd say no.

i meant that i would have that task appear twice in 2 different places even though i wont receive points for the second time

Ok. I would still say no, however, because then the second time it would become a non-scorable action that violates rule 3.g.

Is there a minimum amount of time that the machine needs to run for? It says in section e of The Competition that the Target Operation Time is 60 seconds but can it be less time than that?

There isn't anything in the rules that has a minimum amount of time for the whole device, as far as I see, but the only minimum time applies to a timer.
